What's wrong with this picture?


From the picture book Shopping Day (c) 1974, found on my mum's bookshelf. Click to enlarge, for it must be seen in all its glory. 

And I haven't even taken it out of context. 

Ah, the seventies! They were so awesome.

But he's such a nice friendly-looking stranger.

I'd like to think this is:

"Look,Mom! Grandpa Jim is at the same store. And he bought me sweets!"

Closes eyes and pretends the world's a better place.

Yes, the seventies. I remember them well! (Through rose colored glasses, I'm sure lol!)

Sara... I'm visiting my parents in NC. We dropped by B&N and I was glad to see they have SoS on the shelf!
